Word is she sings like a lark and moves with the grace of a gazelle. So why is Zhang Huoding, a superstar of the Peking Opera, only now making her U.S. and New York stage debut? Ours is not to reason why but to catch her in two of her most celebrated roles: as the snake in Legend of the White Snake (below) and as a rich and beneficent bride in The Jewelry Purse. — David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, davidhkochtheater, Sept. 2-3

I’m hearing things like “gastronomic world tour” and “casual café vibe” about Duet Brasserie, a new Village bistro (37 Barrow St., 212.255.5416). Gelso & Grand promises, according to a press release, “proper cooking techniques, plating and high-quality ingredients … transporting guests back to an era of innovation in Little Italy” (186 Grand St., 212.226.1600). Asia de Cuba, the ever-so-trendy Asian-meets-Latin hot spot, known for its communal tables and celebrity clientele in the late 1990s and early 2000s, is back, with a simpler yet stillsleek interior and updated dishes (415 Lafayette St., 212.726.7755). Check out our skyscraper gold, the Empire State Building, and then afterward, enjoy a Caesar salad and a New York strip at State Grill and Bar, the upscale spot that also offers vegetarian entrées (350 Fifth Ave., 212.216.9693). At the new Wine Disciples near Penn Station, grab a table or cozy up to the bar for some antipasti, pasta dishes and a glass, flight or bottle of wine from a list that spans the globe (129 W. 29th St., 212.239.4199). Charlie Palmer Steak has gotten a refresh! I love the new lowered, recessed ceiling, autumnal color scheme and subdued lighting (5 E. 54th St., 646.559.8440).

THEATER NEWS by Francis Lewis

With apologies to William Shakespeare, all that glisters is indeed gold—Oscar gold—as four Academy Award-winning actresses take center stage, not in Hollywood but in NYC this month. Here’s the lineup, starting at the top, left, with Ingrid Bergman. • A gala theatrical tribute on Sept. 12 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, 30 Lafayette Ave., bam.org) marks the centennial of Bergman’s birth (Aug. 29, 1915). Isabella Rossellini, her daughter, and Jeremy Irons, himself an Oscar recipient, lead the live salute. A film retrospective, Sept. 13-29, also honors the late actress (BAM Rose Cinemas, 30 Lafayette Ave.). But did you know that Bergman was a leading light on Broadway as well? In 1947, she was handed the first-ever Tony Award—in the form of a compact— for her performance in Joan of Lorraine.

Rumer Has It …

True to her name, Rumer Willis (above) set the gossip mill turning in early August. Would the Dancing With the Stars winner make her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago on time or would multiple stress fractures to her right foot sideline the jazz baby? Did she need more rehearsal time? Was she getting cold feet? Rumors circulated until it was announced on Aug. 6 that Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s eldest daughter will now step into the dance-heavy show on Sept. 14 for seven weeks, fully recovered. No rumor this: Dad Bruce makes his Broadway debut in Misery, starting Oct. 22. Can mom be far behind? Or is that just wishful thinking—or a rumor we would like to start? | Chicago, Ambassador Theatre, 219 W. 49th St., 212.239.6200

• Juliette Binoche, whose nurse Hana in The English Patient earned her 1996’s Best Supporting Actress statuette, gets her Greek tragedy on when she plays the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival in a new English-language translation of Sophocles’ Antigone, Sept. 24-Oct. 4 (BAM Harvey Theater, 651 Fulton St., bam.org). • From supporting player (12 Years a Slave) to her name above the title, Lupita Nyong’o makes the leap and her NYC stage debut in Eclipsed at The Public Theater (425 Lafayette St., public theater .org). Hurry: It’s a limited run, Sept. 29-Nov. 8. • Marlee Matlin is the first (and to date only) deaf actor to win an Oscar (Children of a Lesser God, 1986). Thirty years on, she’s now a Broadway debutante in Deaf West Theatre’s reimagining of Spring Awakening (Brooks Atkinson Theatre, 256 W. 47th St., 877.250.2929), performed in American Sign Language, while simultaneously spoken and sung in English. The curtain goes up Sept. 8.

It’s the garage sale to end all garage sales for theater buffs. Props, costumes and memorabilia are for sale; stars from Broadway, TV and film sign autographs for a donation; and all proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS and its programs. | Broadway Flea Market and Grand Auction, Shubert Alley and W. 44th St., btw Broadway & Eighth Ave., broadwaycares.org/fleamarket2015, Sept. 27

SUITE DEALS by Lee Howard

TriBeCa Panorama On a lofty perch at the top of TriBeCa’s 270 Broadway, Penthouse C’s private terrace offers a panoramic view that includes One World Observatory. A glass atrium and open staircase lead to the second floor’s three bedroom suites, which include a master suite with a walk-in closet and travertine marble bathroom with a double sink and wet room. Below that are the living areas, kitchen and powder room. The $6.15 million triplex, with some 2,590 square feet of space, has been renovated by architect Steven Harris and has south-facing views that include the treetops of City Hall Park toward Brooklyn Bridge. | Town Residential: Mitchell Cashwell, 646.738.2660, or Jarrod Guy Randolph, 646.588.4320

Sky-High Variety There are many different New York perspectives to enjoy from the four terraces of this $11.75 million triplex. At 3,503 square feet, with four bedrooms and an outdoor plunge pool, it’s the largest of three penthouses at The Sutton, a new 29-story condominium. The 113 residences at Midtown Manhattan’s 959 First Ave. range from $950,000 studios upward, each with high ceilings, oversize windows and generous living space. Many apartments have separate wine refrigerators, and some of the building’s design flourishes were inspired by Sutton Place, the local neighborhood cherished for its artisan shops, riverside parks and intimate character. | Toll Brothers City Living, 885 Third Ave., 27th fl., 212.388.9194

New and Historic

With its neighborhood recently landmarked as part of the Park Avenue Historic District, 1110 Park Avenue could be the last chance to buy into a high-caliber, new construction on this stretch of the Upper East Side. The boutique 16-story building, just two blocks from Central Park, has interior touches designed by Barry Rice and a classical Indiana limestone façade. Nine residences vary from a three-bedroom apartment at 2,855 square feet and $8.9 million, to the gigantic 7,000-square-foot, fivebedroom triplex penthouse with a $35 million price tag to match. Living spaces come with custom mahogany paneling, and each home has keyed elevator access, en suite bathrooms in all bedrooms and Juliet balconies. | 1110 Park Ave., 212.576.1030

FASCINATING ART DISPLAYS by Terry Trucco

The Art of Walking Early in his career, British land artist Richard Long showed how a walk in the great outdoors can be a work of art, adding time and distance to the myriad ways artists depict nature. Spanning nearly five decades, Long’s ambles and meditations in the world’s wildest reaches, Antarctica to the Sahara, are recorded in maps, text pieces and temporary sculptures fashioned from found resources like grass, rocks, even the artist’s footprints. In Crescent to Cross, the journey continues with an enormous on-site mud drawing, a new red stone sculpture and photographs of landscape installations like “Aconcagua Circle” (left, 2012). | Sperone Westwater, 257 Bowery, 212.999.7337, Sept. 11 thru Oct. 24

After Homer In Dressing for the Carnival, artist Judy Glantzman shines a light on her creative process. Drawn to the Winslow Homer painting by the same name—a percipient rendering of former slaves from 1877—Glantzman translated her impressions into drawings that led to paintings. In “Dressing for the Carnival, Piggyback 1 After Winslow Homer” (below, 2014), the artist, long fascinated with psychology, probes the complex layers of form, race and Americana she discovered in Homer. | Betty Cunningham Gallery, 15 Rivington St., 212.242.2772, Sept. 9 thru Oct. 17

Games

Silvia Bächli’s quietly playful gouaches and drawings capture fleeting moments, but they also explore how memory and reality are perceived. The artist creates complex ensembles, like “Untitled (Nr. 2)” (right, 2015), which testify to the Swiss artist’s belief that “good drawings are larger than the format decreed by the edge of the paper.” | Peter Freeman Inc., 140 Grand St., 212.966.5154, Sept. 10 thru Oct. 24

Minus Cupid

Known his for eye-pleasing but provocative revisionist retellings of art history, William Villalongo, who lives and works in Brooklyn, confronts the classic female bather in Mind, Body & Soul, posing questions about who represents idealized beauty. In “Psyche” (left, 2015), he ramps up the picture’s emotional impact by unexpectedly pairing velvet flocking with paint. | Susan Inglett Gallery, 522 W. 24th St., 212.647.9111, Sept. 10 thru Oct. 17

THE AFTER-DARK SCENE by Joni Sweet

Dancing With Chopsticks

Focus on Gin

A new dinner show proves there’s some truth to that old adage that every waiter in New York is really an aspiring performer. At Sushi Roxx, servers drop off surprisingly delicious sushi and other Japanese dishes in between spontaneously breaking out into song and dance. The flash-mobstyle performances are manifestations of what a waiter must dream of doing during a lull in dinner service. The space itself wows with lit-up Godzilla pinball-inspired art, pillars made of trippy LCD screens, an entire wall of waving lucky cats and a sumo wrestler gazing from the ceiling. | Sushi Roxx, 120 E. 39th St., 212.726.9500

Author Aaron Knoll covers gin in its entirety in his new book, GIN: The Art and Craft of the Artisan Revival in 300 Distillations (Jacqui Small, LLP). It includes history, tasting notes of the best gins and where to find the top cocktails. Here are Knoll’s NYC picks:

Spice Spot

The same spices contained in jars lining the walls of Mace, a recently opened bar in Alphabet City, inspire every cocktail on the menu. As pretty as they are tasty, cocktails like Cinnamon (above; cinnamon-infused pisco, Merlet crème de pêche, oat orgeat, lemon juice, egg white) incorporate specialty ingredients you won’t find anywhere else, including Thai bird’s-eye-chili tincture, seaweed-infused Scotch whisky, Batavia arrack infused with pandan leaves and tobacco essence. | Mace, 649 E. 9th St., 212.673.1190

Rebellious Bar

Take one look at the massive black-and-white photos of horses running with windblown manes and classic rock stars, like The Rolling Stones and Jim Morrison, in all their concert glory on the walls of Wild Horse Tavern, and you’ll understand how the restaurant and bar rebels against its straitlaced setting on the Upper East Side. Guests can loosen up with cocktails from a rock ‘n’ roll-themed menu, an ample selection of draft beers and live music. | Wild Horse Tavern, 1629 Second Ave., 212.300.4132

14

For a gin & tonic: Oceana, 120 W. 49th St., 212.759.5941 Why? “Its gin collection is among the best in the city, but it sets itself apart with its line of house-made tonic syrups, each defined only by flavor profile like citrus or bitter.” For a martini: Bathtub Gin, 132 Ninth Ave., 646.559.1671 Why? ”The best drink is their house martini: Fords gin and Dolin vermouth served up with olive and lemon.” For a negroni: Amor y Amargo, 443 E. 6th St., 212.614.6818 Why? “House-crafted vermouth comes directly from the tap, and for the adventurous, swap out Campari for any of their numerous amaros.” For a good gin cocktail: Pouring Ribbons, 225 Ave. B, 917.656.6788 Why? “It begins with an approach to graphing their cocktails to allow patrons to discover new drinks or old favorites by how similar they are to other drinks they know. But their seasonal, rotating menu can always be counted on for a few fantastic gin quaffs.” Amazon.com will offer the book starting Sept. 17.

Lower Manhattan

LOWER MANHATTAN The island’s oldest district was once nothing but Dutch farmland. Today, visitors will find an area teeming with must-see attractions, restaurants, retailers and more. By Mackenzie Allison ALTHOUGH THERE IS PLENTY TO DO in Midtown and Manhattan’s uptown reaches, Lower Manhattan— the borough’s downtown districts commonly referred to as “the area below 14th Street”—is now giving its northern neighbors a run for their money. While exploring this relatively small stretch of the bustling metropolis, visitors will find specialty museums like the National Museum of the American Indian, housed in the historic Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House;

the Lower East Side’s Tenement Museum, offering travelers a glimpse at the city’s history of immigration; the Museum at Eldridge Street, housed in the national historic landmark 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue; The Skyscraper Museum, dedicated to high-rise architecture; and newcomers such as the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The museum examines the impact of the events of Sept. 11, 2011, via multimedia displays and more, while the Memorial features twin reflecting pools and rests where the Twin Towers once stood. When it comes to attractions, each year millions of visitors make the journey to Bowling Green Park to the mighty Charging Bull bronze sculpture and, of course, the New York Stock Exchange. Elsewhere, visitors can feel on top of the world at the newly opened One World Observatory at One World Trade Center—the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. New York City has always been a foodie’s paradise, and downtown offers its fair share of creative cuisine, with popular outposts like American bistro Tribeca Grill and forever-trendy

Staying Stylish in September

If someone wants the “New York look,” what stores would you recommend? I’d say Ralph Lauren is definitely a New York look. For those who love hats, J.J. Hat Center stocks an almost boundless selection of any type of topper!

From indie boutiques in downtown Manhattan to hot city ‘hoods to the best of Brooklyn, concierge Kevin Howard suggests things to see, do and buy this month. What off-the-beaten-path attractions do you recommend? At the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, visitors can view Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. They will also find only-in-New York cafés and stores to enjoy as they explore this beautiful neighborhood. I encourage a visit to Sahadi’s, a gourmet Middle Eastern market. In Lower Manhattan, visit the National Museum of the American Indian. At this free museum, visitors can see historic jewelry, pottery and textiles.

US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens

What are two mustattend events in September? The US Open (thru Sept. 13) is an immensely popular tennis tournament and one serious fans will not want to miss! At the 89th annual Feast of San Gennaro (Sept. 10 thru 20), visitors can walk along Mulberry Street in Little Italy and sample authentic Italian cuisine from the local bakeries and restaurants.

What are three fashion-focused NYC neighborhoods? The shops in NoLIta are worth stopping at, like my favorite perfumery, Le Labo, specializing in unique fragrances, created while you wait! The Meatpacking District has trendy stores like Jeffrey. Elsewhere, the Lower East Side offers exclusive shops such as Feast of San Gennaro Alife, with street-inspired clothing and sneakers.

What are two neighborhoods to check out off Manhattan Island? In Brooklyn, the bulk of the residences in Cobble Hill are gorgeous brownstones. For dining in the neighborhood, Battersby offers exceptional

What hat questions have guests asked lately? Guests ask about tickets to One World Observatory. The top times to go are almost always taken, so I encourage going very early in the day or late in the evening. For those who don’t wish to wait, I suggest buying priority tickets. Guests also want tickets to Broadway’s Hamilton. Getting tickets is tough and flexibility is important. If our guests can’t get what they want on their own, I encourage them to see their concierge—we can get tickets! INNEWYORK.COM | SEPTEMBER 2015 | IN NEW YORK

Kate Hooker is a lawyer and writer who fled the East Village for Brooklyn a few years ago in search of outdoor space and good kombucha.

Park Slope’s immediate neighbor to the south, an area with amorphous boundaries that is known as South Slope or Greenwood Heights, is a vibrant residential community best known for its nationally landmarked Green-Wood Cemetery and its array of casual bars boasting backyard space and elevated comfort food. A day trip to this easygoing community will hit the spot.

Green-Wood Cemetery (green-wood.com), a 478-acre rural cemetery that is the final resting place of a diverse list of VIPs, including Civil War vets, “Boss” Tweed, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Leonard Bernstein, is a must-see on your trip to South Slope. The beautifully landscaped series of rolling hills, dales and ponds contains the highest point in Brooklyn, with views of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline, as well as the site of the famous Battle of Long Island of the Revolutionary War. Check the website before you plan your trip for the schedule of concerts, theater installations, historical lectures and trolley tours.

Sea Witch pond and (above) its fish tacos

When hunger hits, head over to Korzo (korzorestau rant.com), a European bar and café that is famous for a fried burger, the best hangover cure going. For somewhat lighter fare, Lot2 (lot2restaurant.com) has a homey, rustic vibe and a weekly Sunday night supper that is a steal at $32 per person for four courses. Between 17th and 22nd streets on 5th Avenue, do a self-guided pub crawl with pit stops at Freddy’s Bar (freddysbar.com) for live music, South pub (south pubnyc.com) for grilled cheese, Quarter Bar (676 5th Ave., 718.788.0989) for cocktails, Iron Station (ironstationbk.com) for corn bread and “Southern tapas,” j’eajet (jeatjetbar.com) for fried chicken, Sea Witch tavern (seawitchnyc.com) for fish tacos and a koi-filled backyard pond, and Mary’s Bar (708 5th Ave., 718.499.2175) for a killer jukebox and outdoor coffee bar/flea market.

If you are looking for a shot of culture, there is always something interesting going on at the Open Source gallery (open-source-gallery .org), an alternative art space that supports local, independent artists. While South Slope is not exactly a shopping destination just yet, you can find great prices on cute, colorful women’s apparel and accessories at Flirt (flirt-brooklyn.com). Nearby Jubilat Provisions (608 5th Ave., 718.768.9676) is an authentic, old-school Polish butchery that sells housemade kielbasa and prepared foods that will spoil you for all the rest. Finally, Permanent Records (permanentrecords. info) is a hipster-friendly vinyl shop that migrated from Greenpoint last year and has been lauded as one of the best record stores in all of New York City.
